The United Kingdom of Greater Orcadia is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 1.449 billion Greater Orcadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 25.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Greater Orcadian economy, worth 67.6 trillion Orcadian Pounds a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,644 Orcadian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, and vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Greater Orcadian mussels the biggest in the South Pacific. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Orcadia's national animal is the Deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
